George Fertig was a Jungian, a socialist, a symbolist and an outsider. For 40 years he struggled to survive as as artist in Vancouver, British Columbia. Part biography and part memoir, as told by his eldest daughter, this book includes fourteen years of research, interviews, letters and over one hundred and fifty rare photographs. Born in Alberta in 1915 George Fertig's creative passion began at age twenty with photography during the Depression and World War II. He lived in Fruitvale BC and was a member of the infamous Trail Mine Mill Union in the '30s. George Fertig's unique oil paintings have found no duplication in Canada. They range from early landscapes, to large powerful archetypal images and small numinous meditations on eternity.
